It is with pride and a great sense of achievement that we are announcing an extremely significant award just released this week. The readers of America’s leading travel magazine “Travel + Leisure” have for the Travel + Leisure 2011 World’s Best Awards, declared Singita Grumeti Reserves, Tanzania, as no. 1 in their worldwide “Top 100 Hotels” poll.
We couldn’t be more thrilled to announce this news – and not only have we scooped up the 1st place but also Singita Sabi Sand, South Africa, has been ranked as No. 2 Hotel in the World overall. But there’s more – we are also extremely proud that Singita Kruger National Park secured the winning slot for Best Hotel Spa in Africa and the Middle East.
The awards are featured now on TravelandLeisure.com/worldsbest and will appear in the August issue of the American Travel + Leisure magazine (due for release on 22 July). The survey results are based on readers’ ratings. Properties were rated on a scale of 1 to 5, with 5 being excellent, according to selected characteristics: rooms/facilities, location, service, restaurants/food, and value. Hotel spas are rated on the basis of their ambience, treatments, service and value.
Singita Game Reserves featuring in the coveted Travel + Leisure World’s Best Awards follows on from Singita Pamushana winning the 2011 Tourism for Tomorrow Conservation Award last month demonstrating that our tourism development and operations have made a tangible contribution to the conservation of nature.
